LGBT Studies Research at NYPL


 Saturday, June 19th (tomorrow) at 3:15 at the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building , join us for an hour-long class exploring databases, digital collections, books, journals, and archival collections, as well as examining the challenges posed by evolving conceptions of homosexuality, changing terminology, and the still-looming specter of the “closet.”

Find out the best ways to research the NYPL’s preeminent collections on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) history- see how subject headings have changed over time (and which ones best suit your needs today) and explore the extensive databases and archival collections of the NYPL.  Whether you're writing your thesis, dissertation, a book, or are just hoping to explore LGBT history a little more thoroughly, this class is for you!
